Article: Functions of the interactive Gantt charts
When you add tasks to the Project list, the duration of those tasks is displayed in the Gantt Chart.
You can use click-and-drag to adjust the schedule:
- Place your cursor on the center of the graphic image so that the hand icon is displayed. Now, click and drag the item to a different day. This will adjust that Task’s Start and Finish dates without changing its duration.
Special Note: If you select multiple tasks which are not linked together and then move any of them, they will all move together and maintain their relative positions to one another. This is especially useful when you need to change the start date of a project which has already been planned out in the application.
- Place your cursor on the left or right edge of the graphic image so that the arrow is displayed. Now, click and drag the item to a different day. This will adjust the Duration of that Task.
When you adjust your schedule in the Gantt Chart, the list view will also automatically adjust as well.
Use these buttons to zoom in and out on the time scale in the Gantt Chart. You can drill down to the hours of the day or zoom out all the way to a multi-year view.
Use this button to hide or display the Gantt Chart as you see fit.
